The 100 Motor Cars of Radnor Hunt

For the seventeenth year, the Radnor Hunt Concoours will have a unique grouping of cars, carriages and motorcycles to present. The main feature will include Art Deco Cars, an era known for its flamboyant style, so expect to see makes such as Delage, Delahaye, and Isotta Franchini. Also featured is the Aston Martin in celebration of its 100th anniversary, and Rally Cars which include a number of makes such as Austin, Saab, Audi, Subaru, Lancia, Mercedes, Triumph, and Porsche.



Rally Cars on the show field

One of the more interesting rally cars was the 1964 Porsche 356C that Steven Harris drove a combined 20,000 miles in the 2010 Peking to Paris Rally and the 2013 Great South American Challenge At the concours on Sunday morning, as car owners were putting a final shine on their vehicles, Steven’s tight schedule found him motoring 240 miles down the highway from Upstate New York to ensure that he arrived by 9 am.

Also driving to Philadelphia in a vintage rally car were Mike and Ronnie Maddalena from Connecticut. Their car is “The Colonel,” a 1967 Mercedes Benz 230S, so named because the original owner was a US Army colonel stationed in Brussels. It has a not-so-common four-on-the-tree column shifter. Mike finished preparing the car this year just in time to show it at the Greenwich Concours.
